Johan Strauss the younger was the most celebrated of the distinguished family of dance-music composers. For nearly the whole of the nineteenth century the Strauss family were the undoubted kings of the dance-music world. ' The Roses of the South ' waltz is the younger Strauss's Opus 388 and is composed on themes from pne of his operettas.
When Sir Nigel Playfair staged Sheridan's The Duenna at the Lyric Theatre,
Hammersmith, in the palmy days of his great Hammersmith adventure, he naturally relied on his Musical Director, Alfred Revnolds , to see to the musical side of the production. The making of incidental music is related as much to craft as to art, and of the few musicians that can do it really well, and are both good artists and thoroughly competent craftsmen, Alfred Reynolds is high in the list.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
